72 is a composite number.

A Prime number is a number that is divisible only by 1 and itself; it has no other factors.

A composite number is a number that is divisible by more than two numbers - more than 1 and itself.

The factors of 72 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, and 72. Therefore, it is a composite number.
